Trump: 'No president ever worked harder than me'

President Trump on Monday repeated his declaration that he is one of the most hardworking presidents in U.S. history.

“No president ever worked harder than me (cleaning up the mess I inherited)!” Trump tweeted.

The comment echoed a series of tweets from the president over the weekend, in which he defended his use of “Executive Time” and said that he “had no choice but to work very long hours” due to the state of the country when he assumed office.

“When I took over as President, our Country was a mess. Depleted Military, Endless Wars, a potential War with North Korea, V.A., High Taxes & too many Regulations, Border, Immigration & HealthCare problems, & much more,” Trump tweeted Sunday.

Here is my own experience with "Executive time":

Several times every day,
I step away from the keyboard and lie on the bed.
It is there where the great insights occur to me.
I then return to the keyboard and record them.

Victor Hugo,
who brought us the classic novel Les Misérables,
puts it this way:

“One is not idle because one is absorbed.
There is both visible and invisible labor.
To contemplate is to toil, to think is to do.
The crossed arms work, the clasped hands act.
The eyes upturned to Heaven are an act of creation.”
Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.
-- Barry Goldwater

These dumbasses have no clue about anything.  So, if it's not "planned time", it's fuckoff time?  People who are not used to getting things done probably need the faux structure of a strict meeting schedule.

I'll never forget years ago, a company I worked for hired a really sharp sales guy.  He kept missing meetings we were in and people were getting upset because they didn't like having to be there while he didn't show up.  He would just tell people "while you're stuck in meetings, I'm working and making the company money".  I always carried that perspective with me.

I get what you guys are saying on this.  When one is not actively thinking about something one's mind is still unconsciously thinking about the problem.  Sometimes, one can have the greatest insight into something by not thinking about it and play some video games.

He may not have even been thinking, but just working and getting something done.  Productivity does not revolve around an executive assistant's schedule.

:thumbup:  I have only worked with two kinds of people over the last 45 years, those who when a problem comes up
will double up the efforts and resourses to get the job done, and those who will declare" we need to have a meeting"

Exactly!!!
I've always despised the bureaucratic planner without passion. I'm the other guy, the one that sees everyone gathered around one idiot attempting to herd cats for a solution, I excuse myself and fix the problem on my own, then watch as someone tells them the boss fixed the problem.

I love the look of "Do you think he needs us anymore"?
